While the scores were deadlocked, Freeman said both teams had opportunities to score but neither side could capitalise.
Tamworth netballers hit the court for the fifth round of the Tamworth Netball Association winter competition on Saturday. The Northern Daily Leader captured the action from the 1pm games which saw a number of different divisions take to the court.
